JOSEPHINE BAKER, BLACK DIVA IN A WHITE MAN'S WORLD - PART OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN PARIS PROGRAM
SATURDAY OCTOBER 19 @ 6PM - AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN PARIS PROGRAM

JOSEPHINE BAKER, A BLACK DIVA IN A WHITE MAN'S WORLD
A tender, revealing documentary about one of the most famous and popular performing artists of the 20th century. Her legendary banana belt dance created theatre history; her song "J'ai deux amours" became a classic, and her hymn. The film focuses on her life and work from a perspective that analyses images of Black people in popular culture. It portrays the artist in the mirror of European colonial clich├ęs and presents her as a resistance fighter, an ambulance driver during WWII, and an outspoken activist against racial discrimination involved in the worldwide Black Consciousness movement of the 20th century.
Annette von Wangenheim, Germany, 2006,  45min, documentary in English/French/German with English subtitles.
